Position Papers
Green Party Endorses Lena Tam for BART Board
Vote for Lena Tam - She was willing to take a position independent of management during stalled labor negotiations. BART ranks in the top 5 of dysfunctional organizations when it came to how they handled labor relations. BART very much needs a director who will be attentive to what management is doing and be willing to provide direction.
